Yes it's possible. Actually, it's easy. Install the drive - you do not need
to partition or format it at this point. Boot the system with the Win7 disk
and during setup, select the new drive for the installation location. Setup
will allow you to partition and format at this point. Boot files will be
installed to the original drive and should setup the dual boot choice for
you once the installation completes.
